Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients

Salmon is considered an ‘oily fish’ which means it is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Many studies have shown a ‘Mediterranean diet’, which includes oily fish, can be key in helping ease the inflammation of joint pain. The reason for this is that omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties. Salmon is also rich in calcium and vitamin D which is great for bone health. Many experts agree that regularly eating food rich in omega-3 fatty acids can help manage joint health.

Broccoli is known as a superfood, and with good reason. It’s packed with calcium, known for its bone-building and strengthening attributes, is rich in vitamins C and K and contains sulforaphane which can help prevent or slow the progression of osteoarthritis.

Green beans are a great source of protein, which is essential for maintaining healthy bones and joints - both of which become especially important if you have osteoarthritis.

There is still a lot of research being done into the benefits of ginger. However, what is known is that ginger contains two compounds - gingerols and shogaols - that possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Spring onions are rich in calcium which is key to healthy bones and joints. Furthermore, spring onions are high in potassium which helps the body absorb minerals which can also benefit bone health. One study showed that spring onions also have anti-inflammatory properties, but more extensive research is needed to prove this.
